Proving Ronnie isn't the only Wood capable of filling a room with sick tunes, Canada's Serene Audio handcrafts bamboo-and-leather speakers that're inspired by "architecture around the world", so yeah, they're... (sigh) Gaudi. Avail either internally amped (for laptops/iPods) or receiver-powered (home theater), the three current models're as follows:
Pebble: The simplest of the lot, these sit "like a rock undaunted by the labors of life", and of course feature the entire line's ultra low distortion and "transient response", also the latter half of "call and..." portions at gypsy concerts.
Talisman: Inspired by the trunk of an old oak tree, its asymmetry is key to its performance, as it "eliminates standing waves and storage of energy for improved transparency" while also "minimizing the effect of diffraction waves for a uniform dispersion of sound", a fancy way of saying you can almost hear John Popper getting fatter. Again.
Paisley: Cut like a shape from the famed pattern, this look exudes "class and elegance", sits 11" high, and will "never go out of style", which seems more impressive before you realize the same is apparently true of Ronnie Wood.
